Anyone use it on the pads?

I haven't used it, but I've heard it is awesome! I might pick some up and try it this year to keep their paws soft. I notice Walmart now has it in their pet department.

Chief's paws are nice and soft and of course I just LOVE the smell of his paws...(fritos)...call him the frito bandito! Anyway...we do use Mushers in the winter time.

When I dropped the boys at daycare this morning they suggested I pick some up, it helps with frostbite? :confused:

We use Mushers in the winter too, then bag balm after we wash off her paws after walkeis as they still get dry and cracked from all of the salt. The mushers doesn't seem to last for a 30 min walk and my container is too big to carry on walkies.

Bag Balm smells a bit though...not terrible, just different.

Musher's Secret is paw wax, to protect the pads of stubborn doxies who refuse to wear boots.....

A number of online stores have musher's secret, and many of the pet stores as well in NYC as people use waaaay to much salt here.

At daycare, there is a lab that had very badly cracked pads. Her mom used the stuff for two days and they're healed up! Pippit's pads aren't cracked yet, but if they are I will use that without hesitation!

Bag Balm is great and good for your hands too. I also have Paw Balm (aromatherapy) K9 & Feline care, this one is a Canadian product.

I love Bag Balm. First used it on my dogs (and me) when I lived in Wisconsin. Nasty winters. Since my house now doesn't have a humidifier (except what's on the furnace) all of us tend to get dry skin. I do their paws when needed (and it's great one-on-one time) and then if my hands are bad from washing I use it on me and wear gloves. Voila! Overnight my hands feel wonderful! :appl:

And Mushers is wonderful...but watch how far you walk as they do wear it down and I would hate the thought of frito tootsies being exposed to salt.

and rubbing it on also gets them used to you handling their feet, which makes it easier to groom or if you need to inspect their paws for something.
